The bards, lyrics poets who accompanied their songs with the harp,  occupied among the celtas of the Galia and the British Islands, a place of hierarchy similar to the one of the druidas. They were accountants of histories, tellers of legendary myths, brightheners in celebrations and social events and, according to Diodoro, century one, “the bards talk with few words and use riddles, using dark images to talk about things, putting a word where they mean a different one”, waking up the imagination of the listeners to the heat of the fire and so feeding its traditions.
